    Yesterday's news from the CFS/ME Research Collaborative

    A recap of yesterday's news and an email to Sue Paterson, director of legal services at the University of Bristol with an inquiry of professor Crawley's new role at Bristol and of more details about Crawley's departure.

    I assumed her 'new role' was simply becoming a professor either got the promotion doesn't need to serve on committees or a slightly different was of saying 'wants to spend more time with her family'

    Yes, possibly more of a 'virtual' new role.

    Mine's on a quiet move sideways to a position where she can't embarrass Bristol too much (unless she really puts her mind to it).

    I hope people at Bristol have started to realize that she is becoming a liability. Universities don't usually like their faculty members to falsely accuse faculty at other well-known institutions of being libelous--not to mention in their inaugural addresses. They usually don't like their faculty members to be caught lying publicly about cease-and-desist letters being sent. Her own antics have boxed her in. Perhaps Bristol even knows its complaint to Berkeley came off looking like a thuggish effort to squelch academic freedom and has likely dented the university's reputation.

    I also think that EC's astonishing ethics bypass for the school absence study will likely have shocked genuine scientists, and maybe opened their eyes to some of the other realities of her work; the spell may be finally breaking. Hopefully Bristol are coming to realise they don't want to get pulled down by her ... but they'd better get their act together and move fast.

    She has been a professor for a while and that would not keep her off committees. It would not be called a new role either. I think she must have a new administrative title. We shall not doubt discover in time.

    by my count there are no hatched chickens at this time.

    i don't trust anything that we, or people we trust, are not in charge of.

    and there will come a time when we don't need to read the tea leaves. we won't be out of the loop.

    edited. [it needed clarification. and it needed randomly jumbled metaphors.]

    Could be a lateral move, like, say... just a jump to the left.

    Not sure why, but that picture conjured up images of people doing LP being shown how to stand on a circle and shout stop.
